Noisebug did a nice video using the Flame 4Vox. Have a listen!
The 4Vox is a quad wavetable oscillator with up to four voices per VCO, resulting in a maximum of 16 voices at four individual outputs. With the MIDI In the module can be played both with CVs and directly via MIDI which also allows for modulating some additional parameters.
The presale for SUPERBOOTH21 starts today! A first limited contingent of day tickets will go on sale - the validity of the tickets is linked to a negative Covid-19 test, a complete vaccination or a proven recovery at the time of the event.
Tickets for the special events will go on sale starting July 15, including the DIY workshops, Gesprächskonzerte (lecture concerts) and boat shuttle. These tickets are only valid in conjunction with any day ticket. Then in August there will be another limited contingent of day tickets, of course at the same price.
Due to the official requirements, all ticket contingents are of course limited. All one-day tickets allow all-day access to the outdoor areas. In order to be able to guarantee the required distances between visitors, access to the indoor area of the FEZ Berlin will take place in a two-shift system, either in the morning or in the afternoon. There will be fewer booths inside than during past events - a total of about 150 international exhibitors can be expected. This year, the fairground offers a significantly expanded outdoor area, with ad- ditional tents in the forest, the Hüttendorf, the Fuchsbau, installations and new stages at the playground and Finnhütten. This turns a visit to SUPERBOOTH21 into a small adventure tour that not only sets new accents acoustically, but also as a hybrid between trade fair and festival.
The indoor area offers the advantage of largely non-obstructed architecture for the first time, because the foyer and the corridors remain free of exhibition stands. Visitors to SUPERBOOTH21 will be guided through the wide corridors of FEZ Berlin by a safe one-way system. In combination with the large outdoor area, this enables a safe event under current conditions."
The Wing Pinger from the chinese synth designer Meng Qi is an innovative instrument which combines melody and noise in perfect harmony. It can be played like a traditional instrument with its touch keyboard, or the Wing Pinger can generate musical chaos on its own!
The sound generation is based on two filters, which are „pinged“. This requires a trigger signal and a filter that oscillates itself at high resonance. Especially plucked and percussive sounds can be produced with this technique.
However, it is of course also possible to use the Wing Pinger without pinging the filters and to operate them in the very classical sense. For this purpose, the Wing Pinger has inputs that can be used to integrate two mono signals or one stereo signal. In this way, the device with its many modulation possibilities could simply be used like an effect device - particularly creative if you use this option in combination with the sounds produced by the Wing Pinger itself.
In this video we only focus on using the Wing Pinger as a stereo filter with different sound sources.
